Lent and more on the conscience clause

Lent and more on the conscience clause

This week's video blog looks at the need to slow down and remember lent in our busy consumer driven society. It's ironic how many people and businesses indulge in pancakes and Easter eggs but forget the fasting in between which makes the Easter feast all the more a celebration.

We also take a further look at the proposed conscience clause. We have produced a 2 page briefing note which is available here. The consultation closes next Friday and we will post our full consultation response next week. The consultation is designed to start a conversation, rather than produce a final solution. The document has certainly produced plenty of comment in the media and we are encouraging people to respond.
